Froid-glacial! Buuurrrr!

 It's is absolutely FREEZING here! 'Froid' doesn't even come close to describing it.  Yet, no snow--quelle dommage.....

Last weekend, at the brocante in Deauville--we spied these tres-gorgeous club-chairs.  French Guy has a passion for club-chairs.  Over the years we have purchased and sold dozens--in various states of 'condition'--from let's say well-loved 'shabby' to just restored perfection.

So when we saw this sweet couple--I have to say that this time I was completely smitten; the comfortable velvet seats and low profile back, the perfect color and the fabulous curly nailhead details---Ooh la la!

Who could resist?!  I see a careful and authentic restoration in their future---looking about the same sans the show-through of the batting in the arms and tears in the leather--but the golden-sable velvet stays as do the original nails.... but after that--parting with them would be a challenge.

A smaller brocante coming up on Sunday.... and yes, it will still be freezing.  Bundling-up a must. Fingers crossed for sunshine!

Hope you are having a bonne-semaine!  A bientot!---Stay warm!
